E, John Davis 

When: Sat., April 23, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $8
A trio of indie rock and noise rock veterans, E—yes, that’s the entire name—affixes dissonance-pocked riffs over jaw-jarring drums. Neptune’s Jason Sanford and Come’s Thalia Zedek take different approaches to the vocals, with the latter lacing words around the instruments and the former stabbing into the sound’s core with them. It all recalls the glory days of Touch & Go, really, except with a patina of prettiness that gives this power trio an unexpected, near-post-rock romantic glow. It’s smart, sharp rock, a signal from the nineties altered and amplified for now. John Davis, formerly of The Folk Implosion and now of the city of Durham, opens. —Grayson Haver Currin
